Halverson: God's time
Feast of Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyons, Teacher, Martyr, c.200
And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment—to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ.
—Ephesians 1:9-10 (NIV)
God has a time for everything, a perfect schedule. He is never too soon, never too late. The when of His will is as important as the what and the how.
... Richard C. Halverson (1916-1995), No Greater Power: Perspective for Days of Pressure, Multnomah Press, 1986, p. 213 (see the book)
